A Special Birthday!

My husbands birthday is coming up later this week(tomorrow to be precise) and I wanted to create a card specifically for him. Usually he gets whatever I might have sitting around at the time, but this time I wanted to create a card with him in mind. This is what I came up with.....inspired by a card by Rochelle Gould. I didn't have some of the same stamps, so I altered mine to work with the product I have.

I ran a piece of Close to Cocoa Card Stock through the Big Shot with the Weathered Texturz Plate. Then I sponged Chocolate Chip Classic Ink over the raised impressions to give it the look of grainy wood. I cut my paper up in strips and then attached them to my card front and accented them with brads.

The background is stamped with the Sanded Background stamp and then sponged with close to cocoa classic ink. I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set all over the front. The Tools are stamped with Black Staz-on ink and then Watercoloured and cut out and mounted on the front with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoy today's post. Sorry it has been so long! I have had a busy week and last night I had 11 gals here for the Delightful Decorations Class. It went very well despite the large attendance and I will be sharing the projects with you in the very near future.

Have a great day!
